SportsArt’s Energy-Producing Treadmill to Debut at CES
SportsArt, a sustainable fitness equipment maker, is bringing out the Verde G690, an energy-producing, non-motorized treadmill, at CES 2019. The treadmill is SportsArt’s latest machine to join its ECO-POWR line; it uses a hybrid electromagnetic and mechanical braking system and generates electricity during a workout.
It harnesses human power to generate up to 200 watt-hours of utility-grade electricity. A patented micro-inverter, similar to those found in solar panels and wind turbines, “cleans” the generated power into a form that is usable by other devices plugged into a facility's electrical grid.
